Sri Aurobindo VOL 33-34 Savitri – A Legend and a Symbol

Posted on | August 1, 2011 | 2 Comments

Savitri A Legend and a Symbol Sri Aurobindo complete works VOL 33-34Savitri – A Legend and a Symbol consists of volume 33 and 34 of Sri Aurobindo’s collected works. Unfortunately the volumes 28 – 32 are still not published from The Sri Aurobindo Ashram. The writings of Savitri extended over much of the later part of Sri Aurobindo’s life. The earliest known manuscript is dated 1916. The original narrative poem was recast several times in the first phase of composition. By around 1930, Sri Aurobindo had begun to turn it into an epic with a larger scope and deeper significance. Transformed into “A Legend and a Symbol”, Savitri became his major literary work which he continued to expand and perfect until his last days. The tale of Satyavan and Savitri is recited in the Mahabharata as a story of conjugal love conquering death. Download the work here (763 pages):

    The lines of Savitri reverberate in our brain and … set right its maladies. Many thanks.
